A married couple were discovered dead hanging in their own house at the southern Sari VDC of the district on Wednesday morning (July 2, 2014). Shivaram Raut, 56, and his 51-years-old wife Khimadevi were reportedly found dead by locals at around 10 am today. They are said to have died under mysterious circumstances.
Adding mysteries to the incident, fire has gutted the house. Locals have smelt something fishy over the incident as the couple were found dead in a room, while their clothes were destroyed by fire in the next room.
Witnessing the raging blaze, locals rushed to douse the fire and found the couple dead in the mysterious situations, DSP Deepak Regmi informed. The fire was put out by police personnel along with locals.
Police, quoting the locals, informed that Khimadevi had mental illness and her husband used to consume alcohol frequently.
Republica reports police suspect the case as a suicide; however, the exact reason behind the death is yet to be established. Shivaram’s daughter-in-law was not present at home during the incident and her kid had gone to school.
The dead bodies have been brought to the Bijuwar-based District Hospital for postmortem. DSP Regmi informed that they are further investigating the case.
